There is something for everyone on our menu. When you dine at Lake House Restaurant, you will want to save room for one of our housemade desserts.

We went to Lake House on a Sunday afternoon to celebrate a few family birthdays that were in February and March. There were 11 of us. Needless to say, we were a large group.

We appreciate your review about your recent family celebration. We appreciate you thinking that Lake House is a gem!

Lake House sits on the shore of Lake Ontario. The dining room looks out over the lake where you can watch ships sailing, people fishing, birds soaring over head, swans floating, and on a clear day the skyline of Toronto rises above the lake. The food is suburb. I have eaten there many times and have always enjoyed both lunches... More

My husband and I went to Lake House for the first time last night with some friends. The food was amazing, the staff friendly, efficient and very professional. The meal came quickly, the food was hot, and delicious. The atmosphere is relaxing and lovely.

What can I say, the chicken was undercooked, the steak was overcooked, the sauce on the steak was burnt. The beans were not even cooked at all. The mashed potatoes were like glue, and the lobster was mushy. Worst high-end meal that we have ever experienced. Pasta sauce was also found to be extremely salty. We will not be back.

After passing this restaurant hundreds of times on the QEW, we finally decided to try it, because based on the parking lot being continuously full, it must be good!

We arrived for a late lunch without a reservation.
